Are you excited about Disney’s new movie Christopher Robin? It is coming to theatres August 3, 2018 and we cannot wait to see it. In the meantime we have everything you want to know about this family friendly movie below!
Christopher Robin is an upcoming movie that features adventure, comedy, drama and fantasy. It is inspired by the 1926 book, Winnie-the-Pooh, by A.A. Milne. The movie features an array of actors and actresses including Ewan McGregor, Hayley Atwell, Mark Gatiss, Jim Cummings (voice) and Brad Garrett (voice).
Christopher Robin is now a businessman living in London with a wife, Evelyn and a young daughter, Madeline. But something has changed- Christopher Robin has lost his sense of adventure that he had as a young boy, with his primary focuses being his family and his job. After happening upon his old pal, Winnie the Pooh, Pooh and the rest of the Hundred Acre Woods gang (Eeyore, Kanga, Owl, Piglet, Rabbit, Roo and Tigger) embark on a journey to help Christopher remember the adventurous and imaginative young boy that still lives inside him.
Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures is set to release the movie in theaters on August 3, 2018.
